    Agreed, and the calmer waters of Izembek are similar to Nelson.

    That would be fun. That's about the only way to get to them out there in the open water. I know that you got into guiding for the right reasons (making people's dreams come true, not to get rich.) You definitely made some dreams come true for me up there. The Brant were just a bonus after the Harlies.

    Ok boys I'm truly new to hunting birds up North because Ive been smashing them down here in Florida for 20 years. But I gotta say this looks like a whole lotta fun and a cool adventure. Don't mind me as I pick your brains for information and read every post to learn my best options to accomplish my new upcoming quest for adventure.

    JT or call me Jack

    Share, if you need someone to volunteer to go on an exploratory hunt up there in January I suppose that I could sacrifice myself.and volunteer to do it.:dv

    The Being Sea doesn't freeze. Merle said that the Kings are there in January, but they just don't hunt them.

    Ummmm I believe the season ends on December 15th so unless you have a conservation permit or are native I doubt an open Bering Sea matters all that much ;)

    Edit: Forgive me I'm incorrect at least for this year. The season closed December 16th. Here's what's on AK's wildlife regulations website:

    Gulf Coast Units 5-7, 9, 10 (Unimak Is. only) 14-16
    Sept. 1-Dec. 16
